Letter: Care goes a long way

May. 17, 2014 @ 11:08 PM

To the editor:

Litter.

Abandoned houses.

Unpaid taxes.

Says a lot about a neighborhood, a city, a county, a state.

Do you care?

Perhaps not ...

• If you litter and trash your neighborhood and city.

• If you should take responsibility for your abandoned properties.

• If you do not take responsibility for your unpaid taxes.

For years and years it goes on and on.

And very few step forward to do the right thing, to accept their responsibility.

Many areas of the city of Henderson present an image of no one caring.

Those looking to relocate to this area from other cities will bypass Henderson after riding through many of the neighborhoods and seeing the litter and the abandoned housing. Those people will decide to buy property in Warrenton, Oxford, Creedmoor, Youngsville — anywhere but here in Henderson.

Maybe no one cares.
